ADATA Technology recently launched the XPG SX6000 SSD (solid state drive).

The new product represents bold move to provide PCIe storage performance for nearly the same price to end users as of that of traditional 2.5-inch SATA SSD. The SX6000 uses the compact M.2 form factor, and can reach speeds of up to 1000MBps read and 800MBps write, easily doubling SATA SSD throughput without a relative increase in price. This is part of ADATA's focus on high-speed, compact M.2 drives aimed at gamers, overclockers, and PC DIY enthusiasts. The SX6000 meets NVMe 1.2 specs and offers up to 1TB capacity, alongside its more premium stablemates the SX7000, SX8000, and the SX9000.

The leading advantage of the SX6000 is embodied in it superb cost-performance ratio. The SX6000 is the evidence of doubled performance for less than 10% more spend in same-capacity comparisons. ADATA produces the SX6000 in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. Once more, each model is less than 10% costlier than a same-capacity SATA 6Gbps SSD. For PC users looking at tangible performance enhancements, the SX6000 makes complete sense as a SATA 6Gbps successor.

The SX6000 incorporates the usual range of performance and longevity-enhancing features shared by all ADATA and XPG SSDs. Wear leveling, DRAM Cache, and SLC Caching all ensure better load distribution and sustained peak performance even when handling large tasks such as moving AAA game titles or rendering video. While other PCle M.2 SSDs may be faster, the SX6000 easily surpasses SATA SSDs, leaving traditional HDDs far behind, being ten times faster than the quickest mechanical solution.
